William Ellis of Marietta is accused of robbing another juvenile of an iPhone 4 on the night of April 22.
According to the arrest warrant, the two exchanged messages using the Facebook page “Addicted to All Things Fresh,” which connects buyers and sellers of used merchandise around the Atlanta area.
Ellis agreed to buy the victim’s iPhone 4 for $200. The two exchanged text messages and agreed to meet, along with the victim’s brother, at the entrance to the Signal Hill subdivision off Burnt Hickory Road.
When Ellis approached the two kids waiting in the dark, he pointed a black-semi automatic handgun at the victim’s head, according to the warrant.
A court order led Cobb County police to Elanor Reeves, who said the phone number used to send the text message belonged to Ellis, her stepson.
The warrant stated that within an hour of the armed robbery, Ellis sent a text message that read, “I just did a Stain On God, Had em like No Please Dont,” followed by, “Just Hemed him up for a 4 at the top of my Hood.”
